Volunteer of the Week

Sean King

Triangle Disability Awareness Council


The Triangle Disability Awareness Council (TDAC) owes a debt of gratitude to Sean King. Sean serves as a “jack of all trades” in technology and teaching at the TDAC, a group which “enables individuals to exercise their human rights and ensures all people with disabilities are fully integrated into their communities.” As an Administrative Tech, he creates teaching tools for people with disabilities and provides them with training and support, but he also pitches in by running errands, helping with pickup and delivery, and setting up computers. Sean has been especially helpful in teaching smart phone technology and finding ways to use tablets to facilitate service projects. His volunteer supervisor, Timothy Miles, praises Sean’s “genuineness, trustworthiness, punctuality, and thoroughness” and calls him “a positive, motivated leader and the ‘go-to’ person for quickly resolving crises.”
Thank you, Sean, for your hard work and your dedication to this wonderful organization!
